Craig Bellamy believes Liverpool FC’s track record selling their best players will give suitors incentive to launch a bid for Mohamed Salah this summer.

The Egypt international completed a £39m switch to Liverpool FC from Serie A giants AS Roma in the summer transfer window.

Salah scored on his Premier League debut to hit the ground running with a goal in a 3-3 thriller at Watford back in August.

The African forward netted four times in the return fixture at Anfield earlier this month to take his tally to 28 goals in 30 games in the Premier League.

Salah has also netted eight times in nine games in the Champions League to help Jurgen Klopp’s men reach the quarter-finals.

La Liga giants Real Madrid have been linked with a potential swoop to sign the African player of the year this summer.

Liverpool FC have sold Xabi Alonso, Alvaro Arbeloa, Javier Mascherano, Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho to Real Madrid or FC Barcelona over the past decade.

Former Reds striker Bellamy believes Liverpool FC could sell Salah if Real Madrid or FC Barcelona have a concrete interest in the 25-year-old.

“I didn’t think he would have the impact he had. But when he has had that impact, he is going to attract that interest,” Bellamy told Sky Sports.

“As we have seen if you do press Liverpool and go for one of their players, you might get them in the end.”

Liverpool FC are in third place in the Premier League table and two points behind Manchester United.
